Carmel Market Review
The first section of Carmel Market (commonly referred to as the shuk) consists of cheap clothing, but a little farther down, in the fruit and vegetable section, is where the real local color begins. Vendors loudly hawk their fresh produce, and crowded aisles reveal Israel's incredible ethnic mix. It's a great sight to see particularly on Tuesdays or Fridays, when it can be combined with a visit to the Nahalat Binyamin Pedestrian Mall's crafts fair.
